Love is (not) Lost

Love is (not) Lost

After a painful breakup in 2016 I started a photographic search for love stories. Being single after a longterm relationship made me curious about the diversity of contemporary romantic love.

Over the last three years I portrayed a wide variety of couples and had conversations with them about love. I work on film, with natural light and my empathetic approach results in intimate images of private, daily moments. This project is a search for hope and nuance; an ode to romantic love in all its forms.
